Do you know that a mysterious tree in Thailand has been discovered bearing women-shaped fruits? You read that right.
A footage of the said tree featured in Wereblog has been creating a ruckus among netizens, leaving many netizens shocked while others doubtful.
The specimen or type of the tree is unknown, but it appears to grow fruits with the exact shape of a human female!
The tree depicts what Buddhist mythology calls a Nariphon, a tree that grows fruit of young female creatures.
In Thailand's folklore, there is a god named Indra who was responsible for planting 12 special Nariphon trees in Himaphan forest, which was made to protect his wife Vessantara and his two children from terrifying male creatures.
The sacred trees were able to bear fruit after his wife's image, serving as a distraction to the evil creatures while Vessantara is out picking her food in the forest.
You wouldn't guess what happens next--according to the myth, the creatures would take the fruits in their homes and actually make love to them.
After making love, the creatures would sleep for four months and by then, lose their powers. When the god Indra had died together with his wife, the trees continued to bear women-shaped fruits.
